Watercress White Pizza

Recipe by Carlene Thomas, Healthfully Ever After

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Heat olive oil, add garlic and cook until lightly golden to infuse garlic flavor in olive oil.
  3. Brush a pizza pan or rectangular baking pan with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.
  4. Using your hands, stretch pizza dough into a large round or rectangle. Form a crust lip on the outer edge. Pierce bottom of crust with a fork to stop dough from bubbling.
  5. Brush garlic oil mixture over entire dough area. Bake 15 minutes or until the dough begins to brown.
  6. Remove dough from oven.
  7. Add shredded mozzarella in an even layer within the crust edge. Add red pepper flakes and dollops of ricotta cheese in rounded piles.
  8. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes in the lower third of the oven until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and begins to brown. Broil if desired.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes. Add parsley, olives, watercress and a drizzle of additional olive oil. Slice into 6-8 pieces.
